Oblong Contemporary Art Gallery, located on Bluewaters Island, opens a new exhibition in Dubai: Fragments of Colour, a solo show by Manu Alguerò, a Catalan artist whose monumental paintings, including a huge gold background tryptic, will be on display until the next 25th of February 2023.
The exhibition is composed of ten large-scale works on canvas, most of them never shown before and created especially for the Dubai exhibition at Oblong Contemporary Art Gallery. All paintings are strictly immersed in the artist's tremendous world, which partly derives from the abstract expressionism art movement. In his works, Manu Alguerò puts together strong colors and very rapid gestures that creates a stunning visual impact. Weaves, nuances, and reliefs emerge through the colors on the canvas to create a rich painting surface that envelops the viewers in an extraordinary vortex. It's a strong, artistic vigor, that tells the beauty of the universe and creation, while it reveals the artist's audacity and his ability to form figures and faces through a singular and unusual gesture that characterizes his works.
Event start date: January 11 2023
Event end date: February 25 2023
